Limitations on updating records

There are some types of records that you cannot merge while resolving differences on the Compare to Current and Resolve Collision pages.

Record types that allow a choice only between reverting or accepting the pulled or current record

The following record types do not allow you to merge individual values. Instead, differences involving the following record types display a read-only comparison and allow a choice between updating and reverting:
  • sys_choice [Choice]
  • sys_choice_set [Choice Set]
  • sys_ui_form [Form]
  • sys_ui_list [List]
  • sys_ui_related_list [Related List]

Team Development, Resolve Collision page: Use Pulled Version and Use Local Version options.

Upgrade History, Compare to Current page: Comparing non-current update versions to current update version. Allows only Revert to Base System option.
